“As a benefit to financial members we are trying to negotiate a discount on copyright fees with APRA. To get this discount a member will have to opt in to allow their membership to be disclosed to APRA.

Please indicate by answering [YES] if you would be agreeable.
Or [NO] if you do not agree.

Note that only those who say [YES] could have
their details passed to APRA, and be eligible for the discount”
